Vest Telemark Museum - Eidsborg
Vest Telemark Museum - Eidsborg is a combination of modern museum activity and showroom for Statkraft. One part of the museum is designed as a display center for Statkraft, which has a model of an aggregate of Tokke plants. In another model, the public can pump water up to a reservoir, such as opening a door so the water flows into a turbine that spins around a generator, which ultimately produces light in a model of Hotel Dalen. A visit can be combined with a stay at the valley hotel, canal cruises and a tour to Tokke plants.
